The Witcher developers CD Projekt Red recently posted a job listing asking for a multiplayer programmer to, among other things, "create a roadmap of changes necessary to add multiplayer to the Red Engine."
But the studio has released a statement warning everyone not to jump to conclusions, and that this doesn't necessarily mean that upcoming CD Projekt games—including the Cyberpunk adaptation—will have multiplayer.
CD Projekt's head of marketing Michal Platkow-Gilewski said, "We want to bring to the team someone experienced in this field to evaluate our concepts and ideas. He will be one of backbone elements of our R&D."
"We believe that there's still a lot of space for innovation in the RPG genre," he continuted. "At this stage of our games' development, we want to explore all possible directions, check what would be cool, what's feasible and—always the most important for us—what suits our games the best."
